Actually going to be like 10 mins away from there on Sunday... Rivianforums meetup!
Totally down for that! My flight back to Colorado is middle of the afternoon but I'd totally love to meet up with some fellow frustrated Rivian fans :cool:

The email indicated the Hub opens at 9am. I'm planning to catch breakfast at Jinky's and then head straight over as close to 9a as I can just in case there is a crowd.

Just a follow up. I don’t know if my email just came late or if they sent me one because I contacted CS about not receiving one. But I received an email today inviting me to the event on Friday or Saturday. I picked Friday. You also have to pick between 3 time slots. There were over 100 openings per slot. Maybe they will send out more emails to try and fill the openings.

I just got another email invite as well, even though I had already reserved a spot. As you say, still > 100 openings for each Friday spot although < 50 for each Saturday one. Maybe they are having issues getting people to sign up - hopefully those on this thread who didn't get an email will be getting one.

I would have pick 9am, but the traffic that time is going to be too much for me, I pick 12pm.

I got nothing then. Interesting to hear what you learn!
I emailed CS saying I was a day one LE reservation R1S holder, and asked if I had missed an invite to the soft opening, since I'm 32 miles from Venice and others farther and later reservations had been invited.

Reply: "We are doing a soft opening for the Venice Hub location on 10/15-10/16. We’d love to have everyone attend our Launch event, but unfortunately, space is limited. We do have other upcoming events at the Hub that you can attend. You can use this link: Calendly - Rivian Venice Events to sign up for those if they interest you. "

With reading others today still getting invites, and 100+ slots open, honesty, I'm a bit deflated. I don't want to be "that guy" that feels entitled to an invite, but this just doesn't make me super excited to blindly keep following along. I need a car.

So how *did* they prioritize? That would be my follow up.
